Standard and Poors is becoming the Glenn Beck of finance.

Standard and Poors track record speaks for itself but unfortunately investors use their ratings to apply valuation.

It's time for the Government to step in when their ratings, (and this is another classic example), brings down the whole market. My 401K hasn't recovered since they downgraded the the United States credit rating. Thanks S&P.....

Your wrong! You should thank obama. He knew the down grade was coming and did NOTHING to prevent it.

I am curious just what authority you believe the POTUS has to prevent a private credit rating firm from doing their business?

With S&P's track record, this sounds like I should be buying instead of selling. See housing crash and tea party downgrade for reference.

Tell me Who can take Standards and Poors SERIOUSLY!!
They rated Lehman brothers and others, as AAA while they were bankrupt
and probably insider trading.

Is this the same S&P that gave all those bundled bad home loans a triple A?

Tell them from Standard and Poors to shut up. And I am being kind in my repsonse. It is none of their business who google buys out. I would like to start by addresses them with a more violent retort but I will not get the chance. Like foot up the you know what.

Anyone who doesn't think this is speculation to artificially lower the price of Google's stock so the powerful can buy at a low price and generate massive profits is deluding themselves.

In a related story, the Big Bad Wolf downgraded the credit rating of Straw House Construction, Inc.

You know, everyone I've talked to had never even heard of S&P before the U.S downgrade thing.

I'm not an economics-type by any means, but I think that just goes to show that noone cares what they think.

As the pencil said to the hippy write on.

S&P must be taking the governments lead in thinking there are no rules they have to follow and they can do whatever they want to do. So S&P, if the USA is downgraded, what rule do you use to rate a AAA. If the worst is still the best, then the worst is AAA. Now you are making rating against a fantasy perception of what scale to use. Please feel free to turn in your US$ for yen.

Another bedrock organization like the Nobel Peace Prize Committee gone to crap.

Suprised Obama did not take S&P and give it to Moodys or something similar to a certain car company.

S&P has pretty much lost their credibility. Whatever they pontificate on should be taken with a grain of salt. Their operation has nothing to do with the best interests of anyone whether govt., corporations, or individuals. They should be ignored and allowed to slither into obscurity.
